We all know Rob Garza, half of Thievery Corporation — but on his own, Rob has been developing his career as a solo artist. From downtempo electronic, to worldly and deep Latino-infused house and nu-disco, he’s been able to extend past the sound that he was bounded by in the band.

I am more than a woman, I am a goddess. I am your mother, your lover, your champion. Saint or sinner, monarch or minion, I am your most fervent friend and your closest confidant. Protector of the polysexual, bastion of black sheep, defender of the downtrodden, I am yours. Follow my guiding light to the house that house music built. You will find that I am the bass throbbing between your legs on the dancefloor, the nipple hardening melody of your favorite disco song. Take a peek through my all seeing eye and see yourself whole.
